Winemaker's Notes:

Potent aromas of sweet dark fruit, cocoa, caramel and intriguing notes of violets introduce the wine. On the palate, the wine is structured and complex, the mid-palate laden with intense fruit; blackberry, cherry and cassis and further enhanced by notes of chocolate and baking spices. The finish is long and lingering, with a re-statement of concentrated fruit and spice. In its youth, decant 1 to 2 hours before service. Drink 2012 to 2025
My Notes:

About Spring Mountain:

Located on Spring Mountain in the Napa Valley, this estate now produces only one red and one white wine. The red is a mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and the white is dominated by Sauvignon Blanc.
